Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh gets major boost with Rand Paul backing

Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh remains an unknown quantity to much of the public, a new HuffPost/YouGov survey finds, with views on confirming President Donald Trump's pick largely unchanged since his name was announced.

While Manchin has not publicy shared whether or not he will vote in favor of Kavanaugh, Republicans did inch one step closer to a smooth confirmation process Monday when "honestly undecided" Sen.

Klayman put Kavanaugh at odds with Paul, who has repeatedly maintained that, "the bulk collection of all Americans' phone records all of the time is a direct violation of the Fourth Amendment". "Each nominee however, must be judged on the totality of their views character and opinions", Paul wrote.

Paul followed up his initial comment with an entire series highlighting why he was backing Kavanaugh.

After reviewing Kavanaugh's record, Paul said he was confident he would be more open to constitutional Fourth Amendment protections involving digital records and property. I believe he will carefully adhere to the Constitution and will take his job to protect individual liberty seriously. John McCain, R-Ariz., who is fighting brain cancer, Republicans can not afford to lose a single GOP vote to confirm Kavanaugh if all Democrats vote "no". Judge Kavanaugh will have my support and my vote to confirm him to the Supreme Court.

The 16-time Dutch worldwide managed just 251 league minutes for Everton last season and didn't contribute a single goal or assist in that time.

We hope Mr. Paul is wrong about Carpenter, but give the Senator credit for rising above a single case or issue to consider Judge Kavanaugh's larger record. Susan Collins, R-Maine or Lisa Murkowski, R-Alaska, don't pull a surprise 180 and turn on Trump's nominee.

Since we're dealing here with Senate Republicans one can't be sure that some other prima donna won't get a bee in his bonnet and act as spoiler. Both say they haven't made a decision yet.

Meanwhile, on the Democratic side, Sen.

Although he was initially teetering on the brink of voting to confirm Kavanaugh, Paul had said Kavanaugh "may be a lot better than a Clinton appointee"- in this case, Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

The meeting reportedly was lengthy, two hours or more by some accounts. Manchin is one of just a handful of senators whose votes are seen as in play in an increasingly partisan confirmation battle.
